Getting Started -
Gateway to College accepts applications for new students three times a year. The admission/intake process begins with the prospective student registering for an Information Session prior to the fall, winter, or spring quarter.
Please complete the application process in order!
1. COMPLETE THE APPLICATION PACKET
Packets are available on-line, or you may pick up an application at the Gateway to College office. After completing your application packet, contact the Gateway to College office to reserve a spot at an Information Session.
2. ATTEND AN INFORMATION SESSION
Reservations to attend a session are required. Read the Information Session schedule included on the web site to select the session you want to attend. Call the Gateway to College office to reserve a spot. Bring your completed application to the Information Session.

3. ATTEND AN ASSESSMENT SESSION
This three hour session evaluates your skills and readiness for the program. Eligible students will be invited to attend an Assessment Session at the end of the Information Session. You will need to bring a photo ID to the Assessment Session.
4. INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEW
The final step in the selection process is the individual interview with candidates. This interview is conducted by Gateway staff and helps the staff get to know you, gives you the opportunity to ask additional questions about the program and determine if Gateway to College is a “good fit” for you and your academic goals.
5. SELECTION COMMITTEE REVIEW
The selection committee, made up of Gateway staff, reviews application materials and determines an applicant’s acceptance. Students will be notified by mail of their acceptance prior to the beginning of the term they are applying for.
